Would love to be positive about this case,
This review is from: Logitech UltraThin Bluetooth Keyboard Folio Carbon Black - For iPad Air 1st Generation (Personal Computers)
As already mentioned in several reviews, this has some good features and I would love to recommend it but I've just returned my 3rd one in as many months.
They've all had the same issue(s) - again, mentioned in several reviews:
The retaining clip on the power switch side is just poorly designed - the plastic is too thin and all 3 of mine snapped under what I would consider to be normal use - I don't want to keep the iPad in the case all the time so it was clipped in and out occasionally. As I'd already had 2 break, I was particularly careful with the 3rd but it also snapped within a few weeks.
I have to point out that the 3rd came from the Apple Store - theirs are a slightly different design with a grainy finish and a white interior - I also figured that Apple would have carried out their own quality checks and maybe the plastic was tougher.
Even before the clips broke there was the annoyance of the closure just being just too weak to prevent the case opening slightly in transit and switching the iPad on - yes, you can disable the 'auto on/off' in Settings but given that I do use the device in other cases which take advantage of this feature this is a bit of a pain.
All in all, I really hope that Logitech are taking notice of these negative reviews, as well those on their own site. There are some good points about this case and it deserves to sell, but until they have redesigned that clip I'm afraid it's probably best avoided - even at the discounted price...
